K’NEX – STEM Explorations : Levers & Pulleys
Explore STEM concepts while building lever and pulley models! Using the materials included in this set, elementary-school aged children will be engaged and energized as they further their knowledge and understanding of science, technology, engineering and math concepts.
The set includes 130+ parts for a single child or team of 2 children to build 3 unique lever or pulley models: a Balance, a Wheelbarrow and a Sailboat. Once built, a downloadable booklet guides students through 3 hands-on, inquiry-based experiments on each of the models.
Students will learn about lever classes, pulley systems, resistance, effort, mechanical advantage and more! The Experiment Guide is aligned to national STEM standards and is appropriate for grade levels 3-5.
